Finding Balance is Not Failing to see the Opportunity.

The Alchemy of Touch


Human beings flourish under touch. This is a proven fact from tests done on newborns, animals and countless scenarios and experiments all conclude we need it, we thrive on it, and it provides an X-factor in situations. Some say  touch triggers endorphine.
Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda ) is one of the world's oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than 3,000 years ago and remains one of the country's traditional healthcare systems. Abhyanga is an ancient Ayurvedic oil massage therapy typically used to help heal and detoxify body, mind, and spirit. This Ayurvedic detox and stress reduction therapy is usually performed by herbal oils. It incorporates an aromatic combination of oils prepared with herbs warmed and blended to match your energy composition. Also known as a “dosha” in Sanskrit. There is a more complicated explanation for what a *dosha is but for this blog let’s just keep it simple.

I don’t want to bore you with history. But this part is important because Earthyalchemist body oil is fashioned with an Ayurvedic massage experience in mind. Whether you are intensely worked over by someone in an ashram to silence or getting a casual massage on a tropical island somewhere listening to the waves crashing onto rocks. Remember that minus the ambience, the benefits are surprisingly similar. Only, we are not all lucky enough to have a personal masseuse at our beck and call. Luckily we don’t need one. With Maya Rose Body Oil you don’t need a masseuse. We break it down for you in a way that helps maximizes self-care. Whether it be a weeknight with some extra time on your hands or a Friday night with some ‘me time’ or a Saturday night with your significant other, you can make the body oil your ‘thing.' 


 

How to use this oil 

Simply place the bottle with oil in a glass of warm water (not too warm or hot) to heat the oil a little above room temperature. 

Apply a small amount of oil to the body in circular motions applying mild pressure, starting with the face, neck all the way down to your toes. Leave the oil on for 5-10 minutes before jumping in the shower and using our deeply moisturizing kelp infused soap Kristina. or slip into a tub of floral bath salts to soak. We recommend Date Night Bath Tea.

Maximize your experience after your bath hydrating with Pristine Body Butter.

The best way to keep your "right out of the shower" bloom is to maintain it throughout the day and night. Carry our compact Banana cream lotion bar  and our Red Berri or Green Envy lip balm with you on the go and use it as often as you feel you need to.

  • Hi, this was so exciting to read. The background on Ayurveda is very interesting. I’ve always thought there is a huge void in the skincare world when it comes to ancient and cultural beginnings of some of the things we do. I am happy to see you are able to study and bring in a piece of my culture into your cosmetics and also write so well about it.
